Important Christmas Information: Due to the large number of orders placed at this time of year, we cannot guarantee that home delivery orders placed after 4pm on December 20th will arrive before Christmas.
However Click & Collect from your local store will still be available right up to Christmas Eve. Please check your local stores opening hours before making a trip to store.
Take your actual body measurements as they are more accurate than measuring over your clothes or shoes.
Collar: Measure around the base of the neck where the collar sits.
Chest: Measure the chest at the fullest part, placing the tape close up under the arms.
Waist: Measure the natural waistline.
Inside Leg: Measure from the crotch to where your trouser is normally worn on the shoe.
Jacket Length: Measure from the centre back of your neck to your hemline. Then length measurement will vary depending on the style.
Feet: Use a ruler or tape measure to measure your foot (from the heel to the tip of your longest toe) Be sure to measure both feet. Many people have feet of different sizes. Fit to the larger of the two.
I own two of these now and I love them. They are so much more comfortable and practical than shorts and also a lot more flattering. I concur with the other reviewers however; I am tall and I would love the skort to be a couple of inches longer. That would also give a bit more protection when perching on rocks for lunch! I would also like a few more colours, particularly fawn and navy.

Smart scout camp skort
As a scout leader looking smart and staying practical are most important. This skort fits the bill for both on site activities and days out. I would like it a bit longer though!

Great summer skirt- with legs!
Useful holiday/travel/walking skirt- with bonus of not rubbing chubby thighs!- washes & dries quickly-style with pockets similar to jeans so tissue,small purse and keys can be carried- just ordered new one( i blame my husband- they don't like an iron!)
I'd buy another if other colours available
Only reason not got 5 stars is the length- I'm 5'5 but found that there was more leg above knee than i would seem suitable for someone some distance past 25 years and i added on a contrasting band of fabric so it is now just above the knee- positive comments from friends
More please but bit longer!
